This report provides cost-effectiveness data for methods of controlling hydrocarbon emissions from industrial sources in the five-county Nashville metropolitan area. A baseline inventory of hydrocarbon emissions from the graphic arts, gasoline marketing, gasoline bulk storage, surface coating, organic chemical production, rubber processing, dry cleaning, and degreasing industries is presented. Control methods are defined which could reduce hydrocarbon emissions in the study area by 60 to 80 percent. Capital costs and net annualized costs for the control methods at model plants are given. Net annualized costs ($/yr) and estimates of the quantity of hydrocarbons controlled (tons/yr) for model plants are used to calculate the cost effectiveness of the hydrocarbon control methods. There are wide variations in the cost effectiveness of the control methods depending on the application. This variation in cost effectiveness will be useful in developing a hydrocarbon control strategy, because it shows how to achieve the largest reduction in hydrocarbon emissions at the smallest cost.
